**CALL TO ACTION** 
Friday, December 1, 2017

MAKE NOISE! SENATE TAX SCAM DRIVE DELAYED
———————————————————————————----
#TrumpTaxScam
#NotOnePenny
#WhenWeFightWeWin
Good news: the tax scam was scheduled for a vote yesterday, but it was delayed until today. NOW is the time to make a LOT of noise. 
• Tell our Senators to keep up the good work and delay the vote as long as possible.
• Become a phone banker. Click on the Indivisible link under "Action 1" below to encourage people in red States to call their Senators. 
Call friends and family in red states. Every Senator is a target, but some are bigger targets than others:
• Corker (TN), Flake (AZ) and Johnson (WI) refused to vote for the bill yesterday without assurances that more changes could be made.
• Collins (ME) has not yet declared her position.
• Rubio (FL) and and Lee (UT) are trying to increase the child tax credit.
There will be more twists and turns. But WE MUST CONTINUE TO MAKE NOISE! The Trump Tax Scam must be stopped.

**ACTION 3: SHARE WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY**
Share this post with friends and family in every state. Every Senator is a target. These GOP senators have expressed concerns about the bill – Arizona (Flake and McCain), Florida (Rubio), Indiana (Young), Kansas (Moran), Maine (Collins), Montana (Daines), Oklahoma (Lankford), Tennessee (Corker), Utah (Lee) and Wisconsin (Johnson). Help them call their Members of Congress.

**ACTION 4: HAVE YOUR OWN CALLING PARTY --- EVEN A VIRTUAL PARTY WITH FARFLUNG FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Everyone can set goals to call for a certain number of hours or everyone can call at the same time. Remember – NOW IS THE TIME! Don’t put this off. We need to do this for ourselves, our families and for future generations.
